Don’t Proceed with a Boring Lead 

Looking back at NaNoWriMo 2016, I can see a few mistakes I made. 

The first was trging to do NaNo in the stressed out state I was in. I should have just started my self care resolution two months early. 

But then,  I didn’t realize how much I needed to address my loor self care until December, so maybe NaNoWriMo helped me realize it. 

The mistake was writing something that was too … undemanding … with a lead who was just too blandly “good.”

It was the best I could do in the state I was in,  which was itself a clue. 

She wanted to save the village because out was her home and she loved it and … yawn … what was I saying? I  nodded of there for a second.

I think I will revisit that story,  and my first change well be her backstory and motivations.

The story will take a slightly darker tone,  she’ll be slightly less sympathetic, but it will all be a lot more interesting.
